Roger Federer upset by Grigor Dimitrov in U.S. Open quarterfinals

Roger Federer upset by Grigor Dimitrov in U.S. Open quarterfinals”

Daniil Medvedev says he will be watching Roger Federer vs Grigor Dimitrov in his hotel room to learn as much as he can ahead of playing the victor in the semi-finals.

Federer needed just an hour and 19 minutes to see off Goffin 6-2 6-2 6-0 and progress to a quarter-final with Grigor Dimitrov. He also was trying to add to his totals of five U.S. Open championships and 20 major trophies in all.

Federer gave away a lead and was beaten 3-6 6-4 3-6 6-4 6-2 by the 78th-ranked Bulgarian before a stunned crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium. You catch a good day, the opponent doesn't, then happen very quickly.

"I was painful in my abductor before the match". I'm usually keen to oppose Wawrinka, perceiving that he's hugely over-rated by the markets, and we got one out of one positive result against him in our account during this tournament with Jannik Sinner covering the set handicap in the opening round.

Instead, Dimitrov advanced to his third major semifinal, first in NY.

Not since 174th-ranked Jimmy Connors reached the 1991 quarter-finals had NY seen so lowly a figure on the ATP ratings list reach the last four. He is now the lowest-ranked Grand Slam semi-finalist since Rainer Schuettler did so as world No. 94 at Wimbledon 11 years ago.

Federer has never retired from a match in his incredible career and it seems he wasn't prepared to break that today.

Not even the most experienced of tennis experts saw this coming.

"After that he started to slow down a bit", Dimitrov said.

Federer went off the court for a private medical timeout to treat his upper back near his neck. "I tried my best".

However, Dimitrov bounced back from two sets to one down to stun the 20-times Grand Slam victor, as he cruised his way to the semi-finals in Flushing Meadows.
